Abstract:

This article is in the form of an editorial based upon three United States Air Force Air University AU CADRE Quick-Look articles or dialogs by Colonel John L. Conway III USAF-Retired. Colonel Conway is a military defense analyst assigned to the Air University. CADRE Quick-Look serves as a catalyst for air and space power research dialogue. In these dialogs, Colonel Conway examines the roles of the military and civilian coalition partners, in particular that of the U.S. Air Force, in meeting the mission requirements of homeland defense HD and homeland security HS. The CADRE Quick-Look dialogs deal with the dual HD and HS roles of NORTHCOM the competing combat and HD roles of the Air National Guard and the possible use of the State Defense Force by the Air Force in support of its HS role.
